Overview

Each year, approximately 30, 000 to 50, 000 babies are born through the use of donor sperm and donor egg. Until recently, it has been kept very secret. As our society becomes more and more open and accepting of artificial means of conception, the desire to share this truth to their children is an option many parents will choose. This book is a tool for parents who are ready to tell their child(ren) the truth about their conception. It opens the discussion in a non-threatening manner in an attempt to make it acceptable and familiar. By reading this book frequently, beginning at an early age, knowledge of their conception origins will become part of their formative years, helping to make it less of a shock and issue. Experts agree that the time to share this information is early in a child's life - not later, when it could upset the child and alter their beliefs about how they were conceived. This book is based on the assumption that it is always best to tell the truth, because "the truth will set you free."
